Management: The Metamorphosis Is Underway

Fifty-seven percent of IT executives
say their IT departments are
going through more change than
they’ve ever seen. Why? Several major
changes are taking place simultaneously.
The IT function is becoming less
separated from the rest of the company.
Line managers and staff are changing
from being IT’s customers to becoming
its co-creators. Technologists are
being asked to serve as business process
experts, project organizers and vendor
managers, roles that require leadership
and interpersonal skills. Outsourcing is
carving away large slices of the traditional
IT function, forcing IT executives
to focus on minimizing the disruptions
while getting better results from vendors.
These changes will be painful for many
IT professionals, but there will be ample
opportunities for those who adapt.
